Eagles owner remarries

Last year, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and his wife, Christina Weiss Lurie, ended their marriage after 20 years together.  The divorce occurred quickly and quietly and, fortunately for Eagles fans, had none of the ugliness and dysfunction that marred the Los Angeles Dodgers for multiple years.

Jeffrey Lurie now has a new Mrs. Lurie.  According to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lurie and Tina Lai married in a private weekend ceremony.

Lai will have no official role in the Eagles organization.  “I am happy and excited as Tina and I begin our lives together,” Lurie said in a statement.

The new Mrs. Lurie becomes a potential wild card in the Eagles ownership structure, either in the event of a future divorce or if Lurie, 61, does not sell the team during his lifetime.

    hope he got a prenup

    You’re assuming that there is no pre-nuptial agreement or that the ownership of the Eagles is not mentioned in any such document.

    I doubt that this is an issue. Since Lurie owned the team before the marriage and his new wife will have no official role with it (both unlike the thank-goodness-gone McCourts), there’s little doubt that any possible dispute would be resolved in his favor.

    Good luck to the newlyweds, and (sarcasm font on) good luck to any media hacks trying to stir the pot (sarcasm font off).

    Despite being fat, unattractive, and balding, women still find Jeff strangely attractive.

    2 years in a row 20 to 30 million under the cap because of the divorce.

    Dumb. Don’t care if he remarried. Its only news if its a mess like the Dodgers and the McCourts.

    Jeff first met her some years ago. When she was known as Teeny Lay.

    Getting married is like getting tased. Once you do it and know what it feels like, there is no reason to do it again.

    How old is she, like 30? Im sure she loves a 61 yr old out of shape guy with white hair for all the right reasons…

    What the first wife didn’t take, the second one will!

    Sometimes it takes twenty years of marriage to learn what you like and don’t like.

    And apparently what Jeff discovered is he didn’t like his wife, and does like younger tail.

    Now we know why Jeff and Christina got divorced: she caught him in a Lai.

    In one calendar year he dumped Joe Banner for Howie Roseman, Andy Reid for Chip Kelly, and Christina Lurie for Tina Lai.

    Soon, he’ll dump Michael Vick for Tahj Boyd.

  15. fonetiklee says: May 5, 2013 8:46 PM

    I wonder if Joe Banner was invited to the ceremony?

  16. officialgame says: May 5, 2013 8:58 PM

    Does this man look like the cat who swallowed the canary. Hell yes.

    They’ll be back to the old Kelly green in no time. It was the ex who didn’t like that color.

    After reading the cynical and hilarious comments above, I can only Thank God that the PFT team decided to keep the comment section.

    This was a perfect way to start a Monday morning — with several good chuckles. Way to go, guys!
